What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Cavities, one of the most common dental problems, develop when bacteria attack your dental enamel. In the past, dental cavities were treated with an amalgam material, which is a mixture of different metals, such as mercury or silver. Now we know that amalgam fillings do not adhere very well to the teeth and the mercury may be hazardous to your overall health. At Maison BE in New York, NY, our dentists use tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin to fill and protect cavities. We can also take out old metal fillings and apply composite resin fillings for a more reliable and natural-looking treatment for cavities. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Ellen Katz or Dr. Bridget Glazarov today.
What to Expect with Tooth-Colored Fillings
Receiving a filling at Maison BE is usually a quick procedure. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. After you are prepared, the decayed enamel can be cleared away with a dental drill that your dentist will select based on the location of the cavity and the amount of decay. After the enamel is removed and the area is disinfected, the cavity will be replaced with the composite resin and set with a special light. Your dentist will then polish the filling material so it matches your natural teeth. You should be able to resume your normal day once your treatment is complete, but you may have sensitivity to hot and cold beverages for a few days. You may use over-the-counter pain medication to address discomfort, but you should not experience any major problems.

Maison BE Dental Studio Reviews
An exceptional dental experience like none other. From the moment I walked in the door until I left, I was treated like gold. The staff is warm and inviting. My hygienist, Jade was personable and put me at ease during my new patient experience. Dr. Ellen helped me create a plan of care based on my goals and what's best best for my oral health. The office is fabulous and it's a boutique experience I cannot recommend enough. This dental studio is like none other and I am so pleased to be a new patient at such a wonderful and caring dental studio. They have added touches and options that set them apart from all others and they have raised the bar on what an amazing patient experience is supposed to feel like. I speak confidently and with experience writing this review as I'm a nurse and they know what it means to make it all about the patient. They have thought of everything and then things that make sense that no other dental office has offered during an office visit. My under eye patches were soothing and my favorite part! I truly feel that everyone has my best interest at heart and insures I feel like a VIP while at Maison Be. They sent me home with a beautiful bag of goodies which made my day. I cannot wait to wear my new sweatshirt and feel apart of the Maison Be family as I am proud to represent such an exceptional dental studio. This women owned business has knocked it out of the park!!!!! I am pleased to support these women as they build a brand unlike none other. Thank you everyone who made my first experience one that I will not forget. I can't wait to go back and who says that about the dentist?! Fabulous and fun!!
Have been looking for a new dentist since i moved to the city and after some research and a TikTok post(haha) i decided to try out Maison Be. To start off the appointment making process was so smooth for a new patient, didn't have to call just made an appointment online; the front desk staff is very very organized, so welcoming and kind, very short wait and even offered me a beverage while i waited. The hygienist(completely forgot her name but i believe it starts with a J) and Dr (Ellen Katz) were both so sweet and personable. They both made me feel so comfortable with the amenities provided AND checked in with me while they were checking and cleaning my teeth. I really appreciate the service and visit I received because as a person of color I feel a lot of offices aren't as welcoming and genuine about the care they give me. So glad I found my new dentist! Thank you so much!!!
The doctor has the most personable approach, remembering me every time. Had my first ever filling (I was nervous) and they made me so comfortable. It also was super quick and efficient. As a former dentist hater/avoider, they have truly turned my views on the dentist around.
Dr. Ellen is the best. She had a comprehensive understanding of what I needed to get taken care of and she provided a plan that would work effectively to ensure I get the results I want. She was extremely attentive and performed every procedure smoothly with great results and zero pain! I recommend her for all dental needs and trust her to do what’s best for the patient because of her vast experience and academic knowledge. The experience at the office was 5 stars, it’s a beautiful place and felt like I was at a luxury spa!
Absolutely amazing. A trip to the dentist that feels like a relaxing day on vacation.
